New Liposonix Fat Melting Treatment Comes To Tampa

A new type of non-surgical fat reduction comes to Tampa at The Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery.

LipoSonix is a new device, a "high-tech fat melting machine" used to permanently melt fat cells and reduce body measurements. According to plastic surgeon Dr. Rigo Mendoza, the treatment uses focused ultrasound waves to permanently get rid of fat cells selectively in problem areas.

The device uses a special technology called High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to safely cause the elimination of fat cells. The ultrasound energy of LipoSonix is focused at 1-2 centimeters below the surface of the skin and the fat cells are disrupted by the HIFU, resulting in an average 4-5 centimeters  (1.5-2 inches) reduction in waist size with a one- hour treatment. Just one treatment is needed for each targeted body area.

LipoSonix gets rid of these fat cells non-surgically and with minimal side effects or downtime.  Before, liposuction was the only way to effectively remove fat from a selective area. LipoSonix is best for patients who can pinch at least an inch of fat in their area of concern. The treatment is currently approved for use on the abdomen and "love handles",and in some patients it may be appropriate to have other body areas treated.
